Information about the meeting
We will start the meeting by exploring the area of fields behind the Restaurant which is a good area for Bee-eaters, we will then drive through Grazalema and climb to the Puerto de las Palomas.

We will make our way to the Venta La Vega where we will have our AGM, which had to be postponed from the previous month.

Accommodation in the area
Check the ABS Website

Clothing and food
This is a very hot time of the year so cool clothing and plenty of water is advised. Lunch can be taken at the venue for the AGM – Venta La Vega.

Possible birds
Bee-eaters, Griffon vultures, Black wheatears, Rock Buntings, Cirl Buntings and many more.

Notes:
1. We will ask a member to write a trip report for our experiences of the day.

2. Members can invite guests, but they must join the Society on the day for insurance purposes.

3. We will ask members in attendance to drop a voluntary micro-contribution in the collection box to show their appreciation for the day and help support the ABS Save our Swifts, conservation project, otherwise known as “Proyecto Vencejos” which in turn, aims to provide nest boxes to assist in restoring lost nesting sites. It is an immensely important work as these birds are under threat from nest site destruction.
